Asparagus Salad with Avocado and Parmesan

Asparagus is an amazing vegetable that pairs beautifully with lemon and parmesan in dishes such as this salad.

Ingredients:

2 tbsp. olive oil
One bunch of green asparagus
1 shallot
1 small piece of Parmesan
1 lemon
1 avocado
1 small green chill pepper
Salad or salad mix of choice
Salt and pepper

Preparation:
Heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. Rinse the asparagus under running cold water and cut off the ends before cutting into bite-sized pieces. Peel the shallot and cut into very fine rings. Add the shallot to the pan and cook for a few minutes until translucent. Add the asparagus into the same pan and cook over medium heat for a few minutes until al dente. Season to taste with salt and pepper, remove from the heat and set aside. Slice the parmesan thinly. Cut the lemon in half, and juice the lemon. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise, remove the pit and remove the flesh. Cut the avocado lengthwise into slices and sprinkle with a little lemon juice. Remove the seeds from the chili pepper and cut into very fine rings. Add the remaining olive oil, lemon zest and chili to the lemon juice in a jar. Season with sea salt and pepper and shake with closed lid to a dressing. Arrange salad, avocado, asparagus, onion and parmesan in a deep plate and season with the dressing.
